pastor from chicago, reverend jeremiah wright. steve smith was part of the strategic team in 2008 when they decided that they would not attack barack obama based on his pastor. but this is a different year and it is telling that the right thinks what will unravel the presidency of barack obama and make him a one-term president, the thing that will make people vote for mitt romney is not something from the obama presidency but rather something secret from barack obama's past. something secret people didn't know about him before. if they only knew this about him, his reelection would be impossible. that's the one side of this bomb shell tape. from the other side, this year's bomb shell tapes of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david cor

-mitt romney super pac had even been pitched the idea of bringing jeremiah wright back as an attack on president obama. that ad campaign was never picked up by the pro-romney super pac or the romney campaign itself. it was a scandal they had even been asked to pick up something that racially charged. but a few months later, the campaign picked up the welfare nonsense campaigning in a way that's divorced from the facts but that's loaded with enough sub text to knock you over in a still wind. and they picked up newt gingrich surrogate in his food stamps attack. no and now fox news and the pro-mitt romney drudge report just are going full bore on the jeremiah wright stuff, as o of right now. in 2008 the john mccain had a choice about whether or not they should campaign on really overtly racial appeals. things like the jeremiah wright attack. they chose not to in 2008. if the romney campaign is going to keep going there along with the the conservative media, can it work this year? would it have worked in 2008? what are the lessons from john mccain having not gone there in 2008 when he h

pastor jeremiah wright. >> the video in its entirety is about 40 minutes long. in the clip we are about to show you the now president obama is speaking about hurricane katrina and claims the victims of that storm were ignored by the government but the circumstance was different for 9-11. >> down in new orleans where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stanford act. basically it says, when you get federal money you have got to give a 10 percent match. the local government has to come up with 10 percent. here's the facts. when 9-11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on test own. forget the dollar you have to put in. that's the right thing to do. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> as we mentioned ea

obama was a candidate with the jeremiah wright stuff. it's doubling down on incredibly divisive racialized brand of politics that doesn't serve the republicans well this election cycle but really does not serve them well in the long term. this party, i don't see what the future of the republican party is if these are the spokes people, the newt gingrich, the donald trumps of the world. >> you know, gene, it didn't start here, of course. there was an attempt, nixon what he would say about adlai stevenson in the '50s, the red scare was used obviously. they weren't one of us. bill clinton was accused of sneaking off to russia, remember that, back when he ran. he was some sort of red. mike dukakis was a guy that wouldn't pledge allegiance to the united states, somehow a card-carrying member of the aclu. all this dark, kind of referencing. they're not really one of us. but then with the ethnic factor, because he has the african name and he's black, the doubling down on this, well, he's not one of us. >> right. race adds to this, to the armament they're using here. it's a huge factor

of a job. >> stephanie: jeremiah wright is like his binky. >> on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race for the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. a video has been uncovered from a campaign event in 2007. candidate obama speaking before an audience of african-american ministers including the reverend jeremiah wright. >> what! >> shocking! >> his christian ministry -- the christian church he used to go to the christian church area of chicago. the christian church? >> stephanie: birthday party no one shows up. he has one little deflated balloon. [ wah wah ] [ crickets chirping ] >> suburban people like sean hannity get a little weirded out when people don't sit there so quietly in church like everybody in his church does. >> that's not how you do it. aren't we supposed to sit here and protect. >> stephanie: you're acting so black. bill o'reilly on romney. >> romney's got this -- got to put aside his

to this issue that we went through four years ago in the 2008 campaign about reverend jeremiah wright from trinity church in chicago, and here's the penalty now this is before the videos came out this is before the videos came out. the president hadn't seen the videos. how would you talk about your pastor? he was being very complimentary. the republicans are trying to take us back to where we were in 2008, which is just ridiculous. we hashed this out. the guy's been president for four years he has a record to run on. you want to criticize the record, go ahead. but to take us back to this controversy, peter this is just ridiculous. >> i was tuning in and i had a thought, back in the last election we heard rumors that there was the infamous whitey tape that either barack obama or michelle obama was on tape for saying whitey. for half a second i go oh, my gosh, this is the whitey tape and i started watching it and i thought this is it, this is what they've got? we fought this before. >> i don't think anybody's used that word since george jefferson in the early 1980's.

of radicalism in his speech about jeremiah wright. if you look carefully at that speech. it is different than martin luther king jr.'s take on rice in america. barack obama never mentions abraham lincoln and never created all men -- all men are created equal. those are absent from the speech. >> it is a deplate point and you look at the great society now people look at welfare and entitlement system and how had the great society fail . and failed to provide the safety net and are we in a nation where we are experience 50-50 environment. >> that's right. >> half of the country is supporting the other half of the country. is that who we want to be? >> liberalism had an impatience and hostility to the american congressional system, the olderaxoms and principles of the american public. that is a polar working its way out. we are seeing living hosstillity with the constitution and still the legal constitution. it is hard to bridge a gap that is a century old and has been certainly for the past generation deepening. >> which way are we going. i think conservatives is the horse to bet on in the long
